Embarrassed investigated on false robbery complaint by senior police officer after I defeated him in court – Gideon 

Gideon Osagbemi popularly called Legallion is the Kwara State chairman of Young Lawyers Forum (YLF). Called to bar in 2015 after graduating from the University of Abuja in 2013 and Nigerian law school in 2014, the Human Rights Advocate and Litigation Counsel is the Head of Chambers, R. O. Balogun & Co. In this WhatsApp chat with ACTING EDITOR, MUMINI ABDULKAREEM, the Kwara based but Kogi born indigene from Yagba West Local Government talks about the most dramatic event thus far since he began practice. Excerpts:

The one that readily comes to my mind now was an incident that occurred in March 2020 here in Ilorin. It happened that I handled a matter at the State High Court for a client which I won and got judgment. It has to do with a land matter. To levy execution of the judgment, we eventually mobilized the court bailiff to the place. However, the defendant who is the judgment debtor now happened to be a senior police officer. But surprisingly he went ahead to make a false complaint of robbery against me to the police exploiting his position. Before you know it, the police invited me and began investigation of his complaint against me. Although, truth eventually prevailed, but the whole scenario was really embarrassing to me and it will continue to be one of the moments that I will never forget.
